Rosh Hashana is the perfect time for this unique and creative apple pie presentation. These classic apple cobblers are served in mini mason jars and the jar rings circle the ice cream scoop to add interest to the presentation. The cinnamon stick and dried apricots complete the fall and rustic look.

Monogram Frozen Layer Cake

Light and refreshing, the perfect summer dessert.

It always amazes me how, with  a little creativity, the ordinary can be transformed into extraordinary.

In an article I wrote for Family First Magazine in the Fall of 2015, I featured this recipe as a log cake. It's a popular recipe that I have seen served at many parties since. I recently attended a party, hosted by a close friend of mine. Each course was a masterpiece. When I complimented her she said, "wait till you see what I made for dessert-even you will be impressed."

 Impressed I was! She had used a Cuisipro Ice Cream Scoop and Stack to cut out individual portions of the ice cream log and placed them on plates garnished with dessert sauce. But the best is yet to come. She had personalized each portion with the initial of the new couple's last name by cutting it out of fruit strips. The results were so outstanding that I couldn't resist sharing them with you. Enjoy!

Chocolate Babka

When it comes to babka I often think of Goldilocks (that's right, the one with the three bears). You see, somehow it's always hard to get the babka "just right". Sometimes, it's too doughy, while at other times too chocolatey, but the perfect balance seems so hard to find.  A few years ago I got this recipe from my good friend Shaini, I'm sure you'll agree with me that the only complaint you'll hear will be " someone's been eating my piece...."

Shlissel Challah

As we all get back into our normal post Passover routine (whatever that is!) there is an age old custom to make “Shlissel” (Key) Challah as a Segulah (omen) for livelihood.  This year, I added caramel coloring to part of my dough to give a new “twist” to this ancient Minhag.
